I swallowed this one down whole. Great for kids and adults. There are many diamonds of wisdom in these pages. Some images the author creates are uniquely beautiful. You may find this book touching and it may leave a lasting impression upon you. At the same time, the stories are ancient and play a deep role in literature through the ages. Written so long ago but the characters can still be found among us today. Educational and highly entertaining.
